4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

Fun place that has bowling, an arcade and other activities. They also have a large bar and they serve great food. There is a back room that can be used for private parties. That room has four bowling lanes, tables and chairs, a sofa and an area for a buffet.

We really enjoy stopping in at Rule 3 in Pickerington. This place is not only a great stop for families to enjoy the arcade and bowling but also features a bar with a decent selection of beers and a menu that is really pretty good for a place like this. We especially enjoy hanging outside on the patio in the... More

Dad went golfing so I brought the boys to Rule 3 for an afternoon of fun! Well the coupons I had for bowling were only good Mon-Thurs. One hour of bowling was $27 plus shoe rental:( must be why no one was bowling! A few kids were in the arcade where I could use coupon to receive $10 worth of... More

Here is a place where grandma can sit and the kids can play. OR travelers can eat and stretch their legs. The food is decent and the variety of activities is very cool. Whole families can bowl! They even have a small bowling alleys for pre-schooler play dates. Volleyball, game machines, and more. It is a bit noisy :-)

I would go 3 1/2 stars if I was able. Overall slightly above average for us. This review is for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Total bill was $28 and change. This included 2 iced teas ($4), Mad Mex Hamburger with cup of soup (Chili) instead of a regular side ($12.50), and Club with a cup of soup (Tomato Basil)... More

We usually love heading out to Rule3 for a night of family fun, or going out with grown-up friends. This time was so much worse than what we expected... We had previously decided to schedule my son's birthday party there. We booked the venue in May for a late August party. Originally, we planned to have 10 children, and by... More

Food is good but lots of activities take top billing. Bowling, Wii, game room, outdoor patio, live music on weekends.

Ugh, where to begin. They are sitting on a gold mine, however, service is TERRIBLE. TV's, beer, games, bowling, pool, adult parties, kids parties and just a great time to be had...but service just kills. Go and have dinner, a little fun or a lot of fun, but keep service expectations low. Amy is the best bartender, the rest and... More

You think for a more modern looking bowling ally, that they would have better customer service. I will say this most of the employees that work there are in fact great. But good luck in getting any help from the people who work the bar area. If you want food or drinks or have any questions about something, they give... More
